    Mixed berries, cinnamon, ground flaxseeds, home-made coconut yogurt (much cheaper than shop-bought). Coffee and unsweetened soya milk - no dairy at the moment...

    Been neglecting you all while focusing on my new Freestyle Libre toy - which is FAR better than sliced bread!

    But am back now. Lol, ready for today's annual mince pie event. :woot:

    Yesterday was:
    B: coffee cream x2
    L: warm crust less quiche
    D: huge chicken thigh jalfrezi with cauliflower rice and sugar snaps at which point I sprawled on the sofa for 3 hours thinking I would burst. Fab.

    B - mug of tea with mushroom and smoked salmon omelette

    L (at a local hotel) - Wild mushroom, Leek & Rosemary soup and I confess to eating the white bread crusty piece of baguette. 2nd course of King Prawns in tomato blush mayo with salad garnish. 3rd course Traditional turkey roast with 3 roast potatoes, pig in blanket, sprouts, carrots, broccoli and cabbage. 4th course of Choocolate & Cherry Cheesecake with a few raspberries. 5th course of 2 cups of tea and a couple of chocolate truffles (didn't have a mince pie).

    I also had 2 glasses of Prosecco and a glass of Rioja.

    Not long tested my blood sugars and they were . . . . 5.9 so really happy with that

    B: Did bacon sarnies for o/h and guest. Then a "quick" phone call to sis-i-l turned into nearly 2 hours so no time for me to eat.
    L: Turkey, 2 small roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, brussels with bacon, cauliflower, tiny portion of stuffing, gravy.
    Couple of hours later BS: 8.0 Small portion of home made low carb trifle (Atkins recipe). BS down to 6.5.

    Think that will be it for today.

    hi guys this is my first post on this website im a newbie

    I have just been diagnosed with type 2 (HbA1c of 78) so trying to make some changes before my first clinic on 8th jan.

    any advice much appreciated most days have been better carbs wise but as I am at work I didn't get much chance to pre-prepare anything (I know this is something that will help in the long run though)

    today I've eaten:

    2x weetabix with semi skimmed milk
    4 ryvita wholemeal crackerbreads with 2x dairylea triangles
    quorn ham on wholemeal bread
    alpro plain yogurt
    25g walnuts
    I'm at work so haven't had dinner yet, was thinking omelette with mushrooms?

    Ok thats just a bit higher than normal but not too bad, ideally you want to be 4.9 to a max of 6.8 after meals, i will ask @daisy1 for the info for new posters for you, have a good read and come back with your questions, clive, ps your choice of omelette is a good one
